Reviews

Reviewer: lilrichwhiteboy - - April 10, 2014
Subject: I agree with the liner notes - Nice FOB
That said, I took a quick listen to the SBD and found it also very listenable with the vocal mics not overly hot, as is sometimes the case. This FOB recording has more high end and is punchier than Weinberg's source. With the board, the two together would make an awesome matrix.
